Well of course no, but I never had to check a getObject() against Unauthorized. Maybe it's because I only use it in a CMF setting where unaccessible objects are filtered anyway.
Maybe, but CMF isn't the only use of Zope ;-)
OTOH you're a bit excessive in your "Whole array of possible distinct errors".
Not really. I want to know the difference between:
- unauthorized: my object has problems and probably needs its permissions fixing
- not found: I want to know why an object is indexed that doesn't exist and fix that
- other random error: damn, big problems with catalog, need to post to lists
In all three cases, knowing the type of error and getting a sensible traceback in my logs is infinitely more useful than a random...
AttributeError: None has no attribute x
...error at some point in the future, which may be no-where near the actual catalog search.
